Serious Sam 3 PC delayed into November

Good things come to those who wait, mostly, and now we'll have to wait a little longer for Serious Sam 3: BFE so it can be a little better. Croteam's manic FPS has been delayed from October 18 to November 22 on PC, the Croatian developer announced today.

"The team wants to take a little extra time to make it perfect," Croteam chief creative guy Davor Hunski explained. "The game is playing wonderfully and looks great so we are going through to balance the difficulty and fine tune the code to eliminate any technical issues at launch. And we'll probably add some more enemies to the hordes to blow your mind."

Croteam CTO Alen Ladavac has shone a little more light on the situation on the forums of fan site Serious Zone. "In the past few days, we did some reassessments, based both on internal results, and on beta testing feedback, and determined that we would want to do some more gameplay tuning, bugfixing and optimization - more than would be possible within the given timeframe," he said.

As ever, there are perks for pre-ordering from digital distributors, in the form of a 10% discount and timed exclusive use of a multiplayer skin. There's also a bonus 10% off on Steam if you own another Serious Sam game there. More bonuses and wonders are available in a $50 Digital Serious Edition.

There's still no word on when the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions will follow.
